“Always shopping for the next big idea”

A creative wizard, Iya found the right mentors at the right time who guided her toward a career in graphic design. A native of Warrenton, she has a communications degree from Longwood University and certification in digital publishing from SCAD. One early job out of college was for a tech consultancy, where she discovered her talent and passion for visual design.

She joined Five19 in January 2022, and she loves watching design projects transform as they move start to finish through the creative process. When she’s not brainstorming with her colleagues or whipping up design magic, she enjoys hanging with friends in the Fan, playing with her dog Moose (a.k.a. Lil Moosie a.k.a. Baby) and, of course, shopping.
